• Making the most of film: a recent example

    We make all sorts of films. Every client’s needs, location challenges, main messages and target audiences get us working creatively. That’s why we love it.

    Choosing the best location for filming

    The story may be partly office-based but desks, bookcases, filing cabinets and even the odd indoor plant do not make the best of backdrops. An outdoor […]

  • Time may lapse but we catch it

    Interest in using film to share a story, illustrate a technique, inspire a behaviour change has never been greater. Using time lapse footage is a great way to condense a lot of activity into a short time frame. Our time lapse cameras are, right now, on barns, in factories and up trees capturing the scenes […]

  • Spring into communicating better

    How many times have you heard it’s important that farmers and researchers communicate better? I haven’t just heard that, I’ve watched it.

  • Under ground, over ground filming are we

    Months of work of planning, filming and post production have
    culminated in the release of our latest film commission. It is the incredible
    story of the UK production of a natural fertiliser used by farmers in the UK
    and in many other parts of the world. It’s a film that took us to great depths,

  • Showcasing careers in agriculture in film

    Who better to show and share to teenagers and young people what great careers there are in agriculture than young agri-professionals? In Green Shoots’ work in fields, offices food factories – and every stage in between – we have met some great young agriculturalists. So it was a pleasure to turn the cameras on them, […]

  • Film showcases career as farm business administrator

    Behind – or at the heart of – every successful farm business there’s a career as a farm business administrator (FBA). East Anglian FBA Jenny Pine wanted a film to showcase the work: invoices sent, farm bills settled, wages paid, records kept and business decisions based on accurate records. It’s a brilliant job: challenging, interesting, satisfying and worthwhile. […]

  • On course for more communication skills success

It was a great start to 2018 to have another group of eight East Anglians to do just that. We gathered together for three intense days of tips, techniques and tasks – otherwise known as communication skills training.
